YolanDa Brown
Saxophonist,songwriter and Chair of national charity Youth Music, YolanDa Brown was born to Jamaican parents in London. Her soul, jazz and reggae sound combines a fresh musical direction with a new social awareness and reflections on the world today.
YolanDa has created an entirely new musical genre all of her own in readiness for her second album, Love Politics War, released on Black Grape Records June 2017.
She’s christened it, with characteristic humour, ‘Posh Reggae’.
YolanDa has toured her new album at home and abroad, and was a special guest on national tours by Billy Ocean and Beverley Knight.

Mellow Baku 
Performer and composer of song, spoken word and jazz, Mellow Baku’s voice has been described as sublime, and her words are often subliminal, inspiring audiences with soul, folk, jazz and roots. She's performed throughout the UK and internationally, completed two albums, numerous session recordings and a range of workshops and shows in concert venues in London and New York to local bars.
Her first EP was played on Radio 2, and her album Patchwork Prophecies saw her hailed by Courtney Pine OBE as: 'A new voice in British music, with an original blend of reggae soul and jazz. Superb voice, brilliant music, a must for all’ 

Nadia Rae 
From Cape Town to London to Nottingham, Nadia Rae makes her powerful sultry voice and cool confidence known on the music scene. Nadia released her debut EP I Am a Warrior in 2016 with producer Julian Chown (Joules productions) 
and has now released a much anticipated follow up EP 'YOLO'.
